Miss Congeniality 2 - Armed and Fabulous
FBI agent-turned-reluctant beauty queen Gracie Hart (played by Sandra Bullock) is taking on both bad guys and high glamour again in this sequel to the comedy smash Miss Congeniality. After her undercover mission at the Miss United States pageant becomes public knowledge, Gracie becomes something of a celebrity, and the FBI uses her notoriety to generate positive PR for the bureau; however, Gracie would like to get back to some solid police work, especially after scuffling with fellow female agent "Sam" Fuller (Regina King), who isn't impressed with Gracie.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This, to me, is a classic example of a sequel that was just made because the first one made money. I didn't even like the first one."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"The movie seems so enamored of its own charms that even the outtakes have a slightly calculated feel."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Silly but mildly entertaining farce."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"What if I misinterpreted the whole thing, and it was really intended to be a straight drama with occasional light, humorous overtones? And what if pigs had wings?"
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. If that were only true for the production of Armed and Fabulous."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"Like its predecessor, Miss Congeniality 2 is by turns a predictable and outlandishly contrived take on the Pygmalion myth."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Deliriously funny if instantly forgettable."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Could it really have taken four years to come up with [this]story."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"The things we loved most about #1 were downplayed in favor of the things that weren't all that funny; and a betrayal of the main character through most of it."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"For the sequel Bullock's as likeable as ever, but she can only do so much when working from a mundane script that relies heavily on repeating gags from its predecessor."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous is enjoyable in patches, but only because of the goodwill that most of us still have toward Sandra Bullock."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"There is no good reason to go and actually see it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"There is a bit of a lesson about identity and self-worth imparted here, but it's muddled at best. Who has two hours to waste watching this movie?"
‑ Lisa Ann Cockrel, Christianity Today
"I think you will find it quite satisfying."
‑ Vince Koehler, Entertainment Spectrum
"Sure there are a few laughs here and there, and the climax, while predictable, gives a slight thrill, but..."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
